Reply ↓ poppylocke May 28, 2013 • 8:55 am Strangely, this reminds me of a recurring dream I have where I try to run but can’t, or run very slowly like through mud. I never get to my destination – always ‘almost there’ just like your picture! Reply ↓ Lena Gorelick May 28, 2013 • 2:37 pm I also have dreams like that :(. I hope you have a better sleep than I do 🙂 Reply ↓ JOHNATHAN MENAKER June 23, 2013 • 11:40 pm contrast between “flying” hair, uplifted toward light face (thought?), accentuated by too long a neck, and heavy, static weight of a body, too lazy to follow. whole story, philosophical and poetic. and beautiful linework. Reply ↓ Lena Gorelick June 24, 2013 • 2:10 am I think you are the only one who got this drawing… Reply ↓ JOHNATHAN MENAKER June 26, 2013 • 6:56 pm I think, following your work for a while, that your drawings express some deep hidden discomfort you have in your life. call it crisis, if you want. from what I see around, it’s very common. think, couple of chats with a shrink will do you good, seriously. Lena Gorelick June 26, 2013 • 7:01 pm I think I know everything there is to know about my self, I don’t think I will discover something new from a stranger who gets paid for that. I don’t believe in psychology, since it is really difficult to scientifically prove any results of any research in this field. There are no absolute or even relative measurements and it is all subjective. But yes, it helps to talk to smart people who are willing to listen and have good advice 🙂 On Wed, Jun 26, 2013 at 2:56 PM, Lena Gorelick Lena Gorelick June 26, 2013 • 7:04 pm also it is tempting to think that I draw myself most of the time, but it is not true. It is just my features are most familiar to me (at least the way I see them and I draw them), so it comes out automatically. Besides, many of the drawings are results of random scribbling accidents. Lena Gorelick June 27, 2013 • 12:48 am if I solve all my discomforts and crises what will I draw then? JOHNATHAN MENAKER June 26, 2013 • 7:12 pm I meant exactly “talking” to someone, not any “magical pills”, only someone who leads you towards asking yourself right questions and looking in some corners, you never dare. you’ll be surprised, how little we know ourselves, because we don’t ask right questions. I don’t have too many illusions about modern psychology neither, but I think, really good shrink will not suggest his own answers for you, only help you to get you own. Reply ↓ JOHNATHAN MENAKER June 26, 2013 • 7:16 pm don’t have illusions, even “accidents” are leaks of your subconscious. you always draw yourself, even if you don’t mean to. Reply ↓ Lena Gorelick June 26, 2013 • 7:21 pm Then you have a glimpse of my subconsiosness . this is what makes art interesting. Reply ↓ Lena Gorelick June 27, 2013 • 12:46 am and as a viewer you always interpret yourself, and not the artist. So it seems we are both prone to the same illusion 🙂 Reply ↓ Leave a Reply Cancel reply Enter your comment here...
